PG County’s schools lack 200 teachers
The county had an excellent applicant pool from which to choose, despite the competitive market, he said.
The school attracts teachers in part because of its academic successes, including a 91 percent graduation rate, and the starting salary of $44,200.
Nearly 30 percent of the system’s roughly 11,480 teachers are graduates of Montgomery County schools, Mr. Edwards said.
They serve the largest school system in the state and 17th largest in the country — a projected 145,622 students in 199 school. Classes start Aug. 27.
Arlington County will hire about 1,250 teachers before school begins, said school spokeswoman Mary Shaw. She could not confirm how many teachers had already been hired, but said the county did not expect to come up short.
“It’s something that’s constantly in flux,” she said. “It is our goal to have a teacher in each classroom by the first day of school.”
The 35-school system will have about 18,000 students this year. The basic starting salary is $42,965. Classes start Sept. 4.
Alexandria public schools spokeswoman Amy Carlini said yesterday the 17-school system also does not have a teacher shortage. The starting salary for a teacher with bachelor’s degree is $42,671. The system’s projected 10,021 students also start classes Sept. 4.
